by Wyoming Livestock Roundup

Casper – The 2018 Winter Roundup Convention will be held Dec. 3-5 in Casper, Wyoming. The theme “Building Relationships” will bring together a variety of organizations and Wyoming Stock Growers Association (WSGA) membership to share ideas and best practices and to build camaraderie.

For over 146 years, WSGA has served the livestock business and families of Wyoming by protecting their economic, legislative, regulatory, judicial, environmental, custom and cultural interests. The convention focuses on education and networking for members across the state with discussions on agricultural, environmental issues and family succession planning.  

Pre-registration for the event is open until Nov. 28, with full-price registration being available after that date and on-site at the convention. 

The convention begins on Dec. 3 with the Progressive Rancher Forum, Make it With Wool Luncheon, a Shared Learning Workshop with the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management and the Branding Iron Bar Reception. 

The convention continues Dec. 4 at an Opening General Session with a welcome from WSGA President Dennis Sun and discussion of opportunities for the Wyoming Beef Industry including value-added, export marketing and the use of Beef Chain. 

Dec. 4 will conclude with a reception and auction at 6:30 p.m., where live and silent auction items from across the state will be up for bid to support WSGA.

As the convention moves into Dec. 5, breakfast will begin with a legislative update for all convention attendees. The closing general session will follow with the topic of “Building Our Federal Relationships” with speakers from the Department of Interior, Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Forest Service. 

Following the morning’s event, the WSGA Awards Luncheon will feature Wyoming’s Gov. Matt Mead. 

Convention will conclude with the WSGA membership meeting on following the luncheon afternoon.

Pre-registration, trade show applications, and sponsorship applications are also available on the website. 

“We look forward to seeing you at the 2018 Winter Roundup, Dec. 3-5 in Casper,” comments WSGA’s leadership and staff.
